Love these earrings - had to wait a bit to receive them - worth it. Thought they were going to be a little larger, but they are fine.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Professional Mom NY Not as nice as I hoped
I purchased these on a lunchtime value price as American West pieces are very expensive. They ended up on backorder, so I waited about a month to get them. I won't say I'm completely disappointed, but I wouldn't recommend them. Other reviewers mention they are difficult to get on, and that is true. The hinge for the back sits very close to the post. My earlobes are larger which amplifies the problem...perhaps those with tiny earlobes will have less of a problem. With a couple of tries, they get easier to manage though. I don't find them too tight, which is a plus, you can't wear second hole earrings with these, and they are substantial without being too heavy. They look nice enough on, but I'm definitely not 'wowed'. My advice is to invest in another American West piece.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Morganonna Received two earring for same side
These are very nice earring although very difficult to put on. My other problem is that I received two of the same earring. They are supposed to be opposite so that one goes right ear then other to left. They are beautiful and that is why I said would recommend. If you get two different ones and have the right ear lobes.....PERFECT.

I really wanted to love these earrings, but my ear lobes are too small. The omega back and post are placed in such a way that prevents any real adjustability. Very disappointed with the execution of this design. On the upside, these are very substantial sterling earrings which are well worth the price and then some. The feather design is unique, interesting and beautiful. If you have larger ear lobes, then I recommend giving these a try.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CollegeMom Doesn't appear to climb my ears....
I think these are cute but I don't think the concept was executed well. They're a little difficult to put on and they look more like a regular post style earring would. The illusion of climbing was not achieved. Cute but not what I was expecting.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bizarro Omega back needs repositioning
These feather ear climbers are gorgeous, but I can't wear them for 2 reasons. I don't have "fat" earlobes, but I found the omega back closures to be too tight for comfortable wear. Also, unlike Judith Ripka omega backs which actually bend totally back, these omega backs only retract to a vertical position, which makes it impossible for me to get them on my ears.I gave them 2 stars because they are beautiful, but I wish that American West would "re-engineer" the omega backs!

I love these! So cute and original - no one else will have these! They are solid earrings and fit my ears well. I do see how some ears might now be able to fit through the opening, but mine did. Hope they make more ear climbers

I love feathers & these earring work perfectly. Love the detail of the feathers. I have 3 piercings in each earlobe. I wear them in the second piercing all the time. They look wonderful with anything earring I wear. Yes they are a little difficult to put on but worth it. I even sleep in them. Since I received them I have not removed them.... Enjoy!
